A California bride-to-be was tragically killed by an alleged drunk driver in a horrific motorcycle accident the same day she was proposed to, police said.

Kelly Morehouse was on the back of Taylor Rolfson’s motorcycle Saturday night when a man allegedly careered his Lexus into them in Huntington Beach.

The couple had only hours before agreed to get engaged by the end of the summer, and were on their way to a friend’s house to break the good news.
